We arrived ready for the first train, we had the flexible seats tickets & we got seats no problem. The volunteers are really lovely & friendly. The train was beautifully decorated. This was our first visit and no doubt we will be back again soon, it’s worth the drive from East London.

We’ve just been on the Santa Special at Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway and oh my goodness! It was amazing, far beyond our expectations. The wonderful human beings that ran it were incredible. The attention to detail, creativity, energy and enthusiasm was beyond belief and they made Christmas really special for us and our three boys under 5. I cannot recommend this enough, and we will definitely be back next year. Thank you to all involved.

We were booked on an afternoon tea steam train ride, it was brilliant from start to finish the volunteers are what makes the experience the service whilst you enjoy the steam train ride and views, the quality of the cream tea was really good too.

Have just been on the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway. This is a must. It was very very good. All the staff were very attentive and full of information. Keith was outstanding. What could be better than rolling through the children hills eating a Cream tea on a steam train. They are trying to raise money to build a new line costing over £200,000, so all donations or even having a cream tea helps this fund. A lovely way to spend an anniversary
